He was a great session musician. Played with many people, including Zappa as well who I know Rich likes.

I only know him because I really like anything Jazz or Funk related, and even better when they are infused with one another. I don't think he's too well known though since he was just a session guy.

"OK, I'm old and with stupid. Who? "

As am I, but Google is my friend. And though Wikipedia can sometimes be less than reliable, the following statements seem to be verifiable at other sources as well.


"Mr. Humphrey was the drummer on Marvin Gaye's album "Let's Get It On". He also recorded with a divergent list of artists such as Steely Dan, Frank Zappa, Jerry Garcia, Jimmy Smith, The Four Tops, Al Kooper, Jackie DeShannon, Natalie Cole, Albert King, Quincy Jones, Dusty Springfield, Jean-Luc Ponty, Michael Franks, Maria Muldaur, and so on.
Humphrey also was the featured drummer for both the Lawrence Welk orchestra and television show from 1976 to 1982."

And from the biography section at All Music Guide.
"Paul Humphrey and his Cool Aid Chemists had a short stay in the limelight when his single "Cool Aid" made it into the R&B Top 20 in 1971. Humphrey and his group even made an appearance on American Bandstand, as the song stayed on the charts 11 weeks and cracked the pop Top 40."
